Welcome Sallu with Flowers
1. A new forum has been recently allotted to Arabic AT+AC:
So please post Arabic-Related problems here next time.
2. Though I never use M$ Access, I can guess from my experience with M$Word 2.0 upto 2003 that you have to set the corresponding fields to Arabic Language + Right to Left Direction. Emphasizing: Direction has nothing to do with Justification that can be made right, left or center.
3. Sallu in Seen or Saad?
4. All the Best with Flowers

It seems this is more an error by Microsoft than one caused by your installation / machine / configuration. The font for this dialog might be hardcoded to one that does not contain Arabic characters. I'm guessing, but it's still displayed RTL -- so it's recognized as Arabic --, and the same text displays fine in other dialogs -- so it's not a text storage thingy.

You could contact Microsoft to report it as a bug, or perhaps they already have a fix.

Looks like a problem with ecoding, although I can't tell whether problem is with control only or Accsess engine not supporting Unicode in field names.

Can you tell which version of Access you use? And whether you use localized versions of Access and Windows.
